A Croydon North property with floor-to-ceiling windows, chandeliers and a home theatre to rival the best Gld Class cinemas in town has hit the market.
Voglwalpole agent Karen Vogl said the six-bedroom home at 7 Mitchell Court, listed for between $2.5m-$2.75m, was an “unusual” find for the suburb.
The vendor spared no expense updating the interiors, she said, which included a built-in bar, a “palatial” parents’ retreat and a sunken bathtub in the main downstairs bathroom.

Floor-to-ceiling windows flooded the living area with light, she said.
But the home theatre, with its ceiling light-speckled to resemble a star-studded night sky, was undoubtedly a drawcard.
“It’s quite unusual. It is very high end for the area,” Mrs Vogl said.
“It’s phenomenal for everything, with the home theatre and the bar. But it’s still got a nice family feel … It’s like a new house, they’ve done everything.”
The vendors ran a business from the home’s separate workshop, which included three office spaces, a kitchen and enough room to park a car, she said.
But since they’d moved their company off site, they’d decided to downsize, and the home would suit a family with a small or medium sized business who hoped to work from home.
“If you are a family and you do run a business from home, or you’re a builder who needs lots of space to for trucks and equipment, there’s a double garage,” Mrs Vogl said.
“From a location perspective for schools, it’s (also) really great.”
Chandeliers are an elegant addition to the dining area, overlooked by a glittering kitchen with an induction cooktop and Bosch appliances.
The living zone opens out to the north-facing gardens and an entertaining terrace.
The main bedroom has a walk-through wardrobe, a circular freestanding bath and a sauna.
Mrs Vogl said a sixth bedroom added to the other side of the ensuite could double as either an adult retreat or a nursery, depending on the buyer’s needs.
Two of the downstairs bedrooms also have walk-in wardrobes, and there’s a separate study and study nook for the kids.
The home, which sits on a big 1554sq m block, is close to Yarra Valley Grammar, McAdam Shopping Centre, Eastland and EastLink.
